    I would like the Dodgers to trade for Kyle Seager. Seattle needs players next year as many current ones are not under contract for 2014. Potential offers: Ethier, Van Slyke, …

    Not sure Kemp sounded ready, but hes better than what we’ve been trotting out in left of late.

  • foul tip

    Dodgers.com says Kemp was able to convince the team he was ready after a simulated game pitched by Ted Lilly.

    Kemp’s in the lineup, so he didn’t get hurt in this simulated game. No word about Lilly.

    • Anonymous

      Hope Lilly got roughed up a bit, at least.

      • Anonymous

        Ted Lilly, on the disabled list with a neck strain, threw a 25-pitch
        simulated game Tuesday, facing hitters Kemp, Luis Cruz and Van Slyke.
        Mattingly said Lilly would throw at least one more bullpen session
        before beginning a rehab assignment.

        Perhaps left Fife in just a bit longer. At 86 pitches, he may have had a bit more left in his tank. Anything to shorten the innings the bullpen has to pitch.

    Reds played Dodgers in AZL rookie league tonight.
    it was obviously a very exciting game as Reds would have walked off with the win in the bottom on 9 except for a double play with a man out a both 2nd and home. Dodgers score 4 in top of 10, win 8-4
    But, I am writing to tell you Reds have a player named J. R. Reynolds.

  • foul tip

    Video of Kemp’s catch shows him getting up and slapping the wall–hard–in jubilation.

    Memo to Matt Kemp: please avoid all unnecessary contact with walls and other hard, stationary objects. You do not have such a good history with them.

    It also would be good to avoid same with Yasiel Puig. Running into him also likely would not end well.

      Why ask this question (for which the answer is obviously no) about Puig and ot about the Dodger’s other outfielders.
